A monastery on a hill
This project consisted of the design and presentation of a monastery in Rock Creek Park, Washington, D.C.
The scheme developed consisted of a church, library, refectory(kitchen and dining space), campanile(bell tower), four chapels, individual cells and gardens, and exterior connecting spaces including a central and sub-plaza.
The monastery design was developed in terms of the circulation of the monks from their individual cells to the various communal centers at the top of the hill. Both visual and topographical means were examined in this development.
This volume includes the completed monastery as well as some of the stages reached in the development of the finished design.
